My ISP is in Athens and i live in Thessaloníki and it returned back 
Thessaloníki not Athens, which it was accurate for me.

I dont know why it was not accurate for the other members here.
And of course if you are using a proxy then the GeoIP tool has no way of 
telling the real location of the visitor but the proxy's location in stead.

Also in another page which it asked me if i allow it to run a javascipt 
Geo app and i replied positively it gave me my exact city and street 
number too!

So many sites can identify accurately the correct city and even street 
some times, so there must be a way.
